Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #41 (Jun 2010):

Hard pour serves up a thick head; hazed, brownish-amber color. Smells of wildflowers, apples, pears and toasted bread. So smooth and creamy, it raises the bar for canned beer. Big maltiness, sweet with caramel and bread flavors throughout. Alcohol is clean and warming. Hops make sure we didn't forget this is an IPA by dropping a blanket of bitterness and a trail of citric, mint and faint tobacco. Balance + IPA = this beer, so don't expect a hop bomb.

3.06/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Dark burnt orange color. Three finger of head on the pour which settled in while drinking. Lots of sticky lacing left behind. Lower end carbonation for the style.

Smell: Big caramelized malt front. Some medium to heavy bodied fruits show up on the body with accents of orange peel and grapefruit. More sticky malt toward the back end.

Taste: Big malts hit on the front. More malt on the body with a touch of sweetness but mainly heaviness with a touch of saturated citrus poking through. The finish is slightly chalky with more heavy malts.

Mouthfeel: malt, with a touch of citrus. Carbonation is what you'd expect.

Overall: i've really enjoyed the offerings I've had from Upslope so I won't let this disappointment get me too down. It's just a run of the mill malt forward single IPA. Next please.

3.89/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours an amber-red color with a one-finger off-white head.

Smell: Interestingly caramel malt is the most prevalent smell here. There;s a very nice hop profile backing it up with pine, citrus, and some herbal qualities. Smells quite good, but not particularly like an IPA.

Taste: Once again, this does not seem like an IPA. There's definitely a strong hop presence with pine and herbal hops along with some citrus, but the caramel malt really takes over. Really more of a hoppy red than an IPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. Pretty clean.

Overall: I really like this beer. That being said, I probably wouldn't call it an IPA.
